The brutal homicide in a McDonald’s diner in Zhaoyuan, Shandong, on May 28, 2014 of a salesgirl in a nearby clothing store called Wu Shuoyan (1977–2014), who had refused to give her phone number to visiting “missionaries.” The crime plays a key role in the Chinese rhetoric against the xie jiao, and was attributed by the CCP to The Church of Almighty God. Scholarly studies of the documents of the trial, however, proved that the murder was in fact perpetrated by a different religious movement, which had no connections with The Church of Almighty God.« Back to Glossary Index
